The bear lay motionless, but across the fire was the Shaman, drawing a second arrow. Mackenzie's knife leaped short in the air. He caught the heavy blade by the point. There was a flash of light as it spanned the fire. Then the Shaman, the hilt alone appearing without his throat, swayed and pitched forward into the glowing embers.

Click! Click!—the Fox had possessed himself of Thling-Tinneh's rifle and was vainly trying to throw a shell into place. But he dropped it at the sound of Mackenzie's laughter.

'So the Fox has not learned the way of the plaything? He is yet a woman.

'Come! Bring it, that I may show thee!' The Fox hesitated.

'Come, I say!' He slouched forward like a beaten cur.

This is a setting book, and it's what Jack writes best. The Son of the Wolf is a group of short stories illustrating life on the Klondike in the late 1800s. He uses tales of death, madness, survival, revenge, lust and love to give the reader a thrilling glimpse into the lives of his characters. T...more

Es el primer libro que leo de Jack London. Y solo puedo decir que me ha sorprendido saber que es un clásico. Me encanto esta historia corta y como el escritor nos la cuenta. Nos adentra en Alaska en el siglo XIX, lugar en donde los indios llamaban al hombre blanco "el hijo del lobo", que acudió e...more

Note: This isn't the edition I read. I read a bind up of a bunch of Jack London's stories with The Son of the Wolf as its cover title, but it didn't have an ISBN numbers and I couldn't find it here on Goodreads.

Jack London died in 1916, long before Kindle and long before e-story collections. He wrote a lot of short stories, one of the first I remember was "To Build A Fire" which haunted me in high school. But this is a collection that was put together by some volunteers according to the blurb on Kindle....more

Nel dipanarsi di queste brevi scritti incontreremo trapper, indiani, cacciatori, cercatori d’oro, straccioni, barcaioli, missionari e tutti avranno come minimo co...more

O Filho do Lobo é um livro de contos inspirado nas suas aventuras no norte e espelham as dificuldades por que passaram os aventureiros que se deslocaram para o Alasca com a motivação da riqueza proporcionada pela exploração do ouro.
Dificilmente serei isento nesta avaliação, porque sou um grande...more

A collection of tales set in the Klondike during the 1800's. All of the stories are of a good length my favourite being the first in the collection. Tales of survival, greed, madness and a touch of romance played out against a backdrop of an unforgiving and harsh environment.
Particularly enjoyed...more

I really liked this collection of short stories by London. They are all about the Yukon and surrounding areas. If you like stories of immigration, true grit, and self actualization, this book is for you.

Πέμπτο βιβλίο του Τζακ Λόντον που διαβάζω, πρόκειται για μια συλλογή επτά διηγημάτων που έχουν να κάνουν με τον παγωμένο Βορρά. Βλέπουμε ανθρώπους που ταξιδεύουν για τον Βορρά (π.χ. Αλάσκα), κυνηγώντας την δόξα, το χρήμα και την περιπέτεια. Στις ιστορίες παρακολουθούμε τις ακραίες συνθήκες που συ...more

A very nicely put collections of selected north stories. May not be the best, however there are a number of stories included that will definitely be put in the top Jack London short stories. His descriptions about the the relationship between people, the nature and the dogs are really put in a ve...more
